"Sheri S. Tepper takes the mental risks that are the lifeblood of science fiction and all imaginative fiction." --Ursula K. Le Guin, Los Angeles Times

Her first new novel since The Margarets , The Waters Rising marks the glorious return of the extraordinary Sheri S. Tepper, the award-winning contemporary master whom Locus has called, "one of sf's most distinctive voices." The Waters Rising tells a gripping story of a future already ravaged and now in even graver peril when a dreadful, awesome killing power is resurrected from the past. Readers of Margaret Atwood and Marge Piercy will join with fans of literary sf in praising this stunning masterwork of speculative fiction from one of the acknowledged greats.
